View Full Version : How exactly do shields work, because...

As I type this, I'm just standing in a field of 3 enemies, and they're all shooting at me, but my shield just keeps filling up faster than they can take it down. It bounces between 100% and 70%. How can I not be killed by these guys? Is the shield regenerating at the rate listed, or is that just after it breaks?

But I never knew that you could just stand there and not be killed eventually. Now I'm noticing lots of enemies can't kill me. Weird.

Are you using a tachyon shield? there's a bug with them.

What perks are you using? It may be the build. I'd kill to have that sort of setup. Stupid Moonshine Shack...

I'm using no perks that would give me defense whilst standing there. I use a Respark Contender II D, with blue (that's the slowing stuff I think) damage resistance. So this isn't normal? Is it supposed to recharge while you're being shot at? I thought you had to wait.

That's a first. When the timer for the delay is like, 90% and you get hit, the delay goes back to 0% so you have to re-wait that time period.

Max scavenger and equip it, moonshine isn't too bad if you have scavenger. Just gotta kill fast enough to not die.

The enemies are Raider Blitzers that aren't able to kill me. 3 of them point blank walking around me can't get me more than like 50-70% down. If they all shoot at once it's like 30% but that's it.

Murder: My pump shotgun is a six and I have the Scavenger perk on. I just can't seem to kill them fast enough. It's actually embarrassing how bad I have done. I finally got Bronze, but only just. My shield is a Respeck 1235 cap, Recharge 40% Delay 2.55. I was using my Tachyon with Cap 1509, recharge 75% and delay of 9.6. The delay makes it worthless for that.

SilentBob420BMFJ: Sorry for sidelining the thread. That's insanity. I'd head over to Moonshine Shack. Ha.

So then shields aren't supposed to recharge while you're being shot at? How I thought it works (maybe how it does work) is that if you get hit with even 1 bullet, your shield will not regenerate for the time delay on your shield.
